Lauren Scruggs has made a miraculous recovery from the propeller accident last December that nearly took her life, taking the emotional ups and downs in stride as best she can.
"There's still some hard days, for sure, and I think there will be the rest of my life," Scruggs told PEOPLE from her home outside of Dallas last month.

"I learn new things every day and new ways to do things," says Scruggs, 24, who released a memoir, Still Lolo on Thursday. "I think it's interesting to watch how your body will conform to what the new normal is."

"It's good to be out in public," the fashion blogger and model, 24, told Savannah Guthrie on Thursday's Today show, "letting people know I'm OK." (Editor's note: If you're on a desktop, click through above to see five new photos of Scruggs.)

It's been four months since fashion blogger and model Lauren Scruggs accidentally walked into a spinning plane propeller, leaving her with devastating injuries.
Scruggs, 23, lost her left eye and hand (among other injuries) as a result, but on Friday, her father said she's the same young woman she was before the accident.
Despite concerns about brain damage, "She has the same spunk, her same personality," Lauren's father, Jeff Scruggs told Katie Couric on Good Morning America Friday.
And luckily, Lauren does not appear to remember the actual accident. "All she remembers," says Jeff, "is getting out of that plane."

Despite previously reporting that Lauren Scruggs rejected a $200,000 settlement offer from the insurance company for the plane that severely injured her last December, PEOPLE received a statement from the fashion blogger and model's lawyer indicating that negotiations are still ongoing.
"Attorneys for Ms. Scruggs wish to clarify that she neither accepted nor rejected the insurance company's offer," the statement reads, in part.
As part of the negotiations, Scruggs, 23, who lost her left hand and eye after being struck by the plane's propeller, asked the court to define the term "passenger" as outlined in the insurance policy.

Three months after losing a hand and an eye following a plane propeller accident, fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs is slowly but surely rebuilding her life.
"She's taking one day at a time, but she finds it hard to be patient at times," Scruggs's mother, Cheryl, posted Tuesday on Lauren's Caring Bridge website. "She wants to 'sprint' through this ordeal. And frankly we do too."
Though Lauren's recovery may be testing her patience, the 23-year-old has made remarkable strides since the accident. Last month, she took a vacation in Colorado, only a couple of weeks after she was fitted for a prosthetic eye.
